Loftus-Cheek tells Tuchel the position he wants to play

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has told Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel that he is ready to play anywhere he is needed.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game against Zenit, Loftus-Cheek told reporters: “I’m really enjoying [playing a deeper role], mainly because I’m on the pitch and playing a lot of football which I haven’t done in the past few years.

“I’m very grateful to be fit and picked to play. Wherever I play I am comfortable.

“I played deep in my younger years and more forward in the Premier League. I’m enjoying it a lot. It comes with different duties, different things required in that role. I’m enjoying it a lot.

“I’m ready to play wherever the boss needs me to.”
